Gilbert White is well known as a naturalist, birder, and gardener who transformed the nation's relationship with the natural world around them, but he achieved his success because he was a supremely able writer. As well as its lucid writing style, The Natural History of Selborne is peppered with allusions to ancient and modern literature and even includes some of White's own poetry.
